When Las Casas published his tract on the Spanish experience in the New World, it became a huge bestseller, although the Vatican suppressed his greatest work for three centuries.� At least Las Casas’s work is readily available today.� The suppression of Mark Twain’s anti-imperial writings is one of the most impressive instances of how Western censorship works.� Western censorship is not accomplished by government or church interests, but by corporate interests, reflecting who is really in charge.� For nearly a century, it was virtually impossible to even know that Twain had ever written any anti-imperialist essays, as virtually all of his biographers silently passed over his life’s most important work.� His anti-imperialist essays were never included in anthologies of his work.� Finally, in 1992 there was a publication regarding his work, in a small-volume printing titled Mark Twain's Weapons of Satire: Anti-Imperialist Writings on the Philippines.� The book quickly went out of print and is nearly impossible to find today.� I tried to locate the book several times over the years and finally located a copy for about $200, and it is not even really a collection of Twain's anti-imperialist writings, but about the story around them.� That kind of suppression and censorship, done by the “free market,” exceeded anything that the Stalinist Soviet Union or Maoist China accomplished.� George Orwell, writing the forward to perhaps the 20th century’s most read political book, Animal Farm, remarked on how the West’s “free press” performs its censorship.� His publishers, as if to prove him right, censored that preface, and it has never been restored to its rightful place, and still is virtually unknown.� Here is a sample of Tw ain’s neglected work, which has poignant application to today’s post 9/11 world:� “A Patriot is merely a rebel at the start. “In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned.

There were a number of other important explorers that were involved in the Age of Exploration. It means ‘homosexual’ but between friends it can be a term of endearment. “Fala!” – Speak! The most renowned is Fado, a melancholy urban music originated in Lisbon, usually associated with the Portuguese guitar and saudade, or longing. Not surprisingly, the best and brightest that Europe had to offer were rarely aboard those ships.� They were not all impressed criminals and the death rates aboard were not state secrets, although deception was usually used in recruiting efforts.� The turnip truck could not keep showing up for two centuries, so imagine the kinds of people who accepted a 25% risk of death by hiring onto a ship bound for Asia.� People coming from those backgrounds would not make many gentle and enlightened encounters with peoples of distant lands, particularly when they came from Earth's most violent culture, and the Iberian Peninsula was no exception.� The Iberian Peninsula had been the scene of innumerable invasions and forced migrations during the previous millennia, and four centuries of nearly continual warfare, raging across the peninsula, made the Spanish and Portuguese cultures thoroughly militaristic.� The violence that they were about to unleash, on a global scale, had never been witnessed before.
